Hi, I'm having the exactly the same problem with 3 Macs, 2 x G4 PowerBooks and 1 x G5. I've just upgraded to 10.4 and 10.4.1 etc. After nuking the print set up with 'Printer Setup Repair (Panther)' which came up with a root permissions problem and resetting printers using the Print Utility. Then trashing all the prefs and replacing the config file, all through the 'Printer Setup Repair (Panther)' app. I finally got the G5 to work... I've been nuking one of the PowerBooks but it does not seem to want to kick in. To be honest I would not buy HP again, the LaserJet 1320 has been a pain since we bought it. I've only once been able to access the HP utility through a browser.

Solved problem by reinstalling 10.4.1, using write new system and import setting option, i.e. trashing old system. Works fine now... Hope this helps

Yeah, Charles, that's what I had to do too. The HP uninstaller doesn't correctly uninstall everything, or perhaps it uninstalls some required parts. After I tried to delete some frameworks and things, I couldn't even see the printer. It's working fine now, but what a pain.
